PEOPLE in Ipswich can gather together to show support and sympathy for the American people following the tragic events of the last few days.

Friday morning Ipswich council will join the Europe-wide day of mourning marked by a three-minute silence in all Council buildings and the town centre at 11am.

Maroons will be fired over the town to mark the beginning and end of the silence.

Following the silence, Ipswich mayor Maureen Carrington-Brown will write the first message of condolence in a book that will then be available for members of the public to sign.

People wishing to leave floral tributes to the victims are asked to place them at the War memorial in Christchurch Park.

There will also be a public Candlelit Vigil at the Civic Church, St Mary-Le-Tower on Wednesday September 19th at 9pm, conducted by the Rev. Peter Townley.

All members of the community are invited to attend.
